Dermal fillers are a very popular injectable treatment.  They can hydrate, define & shape nearly any area of you face.

3 Areas You Didn’t Know Dermal Fillers Could Be Used

Dermal fillers are incredibly versatile.  Which is why we thought we would let you know 3 Areas You Didn’t Know Dermal Fillers Could Be Used.  They can be used in all different ways and places dependent on the target placement area and the thickness (viscosity) of the dermal filler.

Did you know that dermal fillers can be used in other areas and not just on your face?.  

Have you had facial treatments?, but maybe your neck, décolletage or hands are still giving the game away about your age?.  Austin Brewer can provide the answer.  3 areas you didn’t know dermal fillers could be used.  Straight forward treatments that are long lasting and will turn back the clock for these areas instantly.

The dermal fillers that are used at Austin Brewer are 100% hylauronic acid.  This is a substance that is naturally present in the body (your eyeballs, joints and skin).  It can hold 1000 x its weight in water, which is why it makes such an excellent product to rejuvenate and replace lost volume.  Fillers are all naturally broken down by the body over time.  

Dermal fillers will fill wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue.  A series of small injections of the gel are precisely placed to deposit the filler to where it is needed.   These work to replace the lost collagen and elastin, which experts have agreed generally happens by our late 20’s!

A straight forward procedure

With very little downtime, it’s no wonder that fillers are an optimum way to achieve a youthful and glowing skin but without the inconvenience of having to adjust your day to day life.  Having an injectable filler treatment is a quick and straight forward procedure, when carried out by a medical professional who is proficiently trained.  

We always advise against trying to get a cheap deal when you are looking for an injectable  treatment as unfortunately you will always get what you pay for.  This mostly means a cheap product being used that is not prescribed for you, and unsatisfactory results from bad injection technique.  Sadly we have seen far too many clients after having filler from a cheap deal, only to ask if we can help correct it. 

Removal of filler is possible, but does have its own risks and complications too.  It is not something to consider lightly.  So please don’t think, “I can get cheap filler and if I don’t like it I can simply have it removed” this is not the way to think when you are considering an injectable treatment.  The incorrect placement of filler can have devastating effects before you even think about having it removed.  It is worth remembering, there are far fewer practitioners that are competent at removing filler than those who are willing to inject you in the first place!.  

Please stay safe and only use a reputable and fully insured and trained medical professional.  

Austin Brewer is a highly qualified and experienced medical aesthetic practitioner.  

He has specialised in dermal filler treatments since 2004.   Austin will always offer you a free consultation.  You can ask all the questions you wish and Austin will be able to asses you and the whether the treatment requested is appropriate for you.  This is so that all options can be discussed, and the full procedure explained, including cost and expected outcomes. 

Increasingly we have seen our clients are addressing ageing issues that go beyond just the usual facial area.  The neck, décolletage and backs of the hands have in the past been mostly overlooked.  However, with modern techniques and improvements in products, these procedure are deservedly facing a surge in popularity.  Often it’s the small details that can make the big contribution to your overall look.  With no downtime, these non invasive treatments can literally turn back the clock.

Neck • Décolletage • Hands

We all know what the combination of ageing and the sun can do to our skin.  Unfortunately our necks, décolletage and backs of our hands are in the sun just as much as our faces.   But most of time they simply get overlooked when we apply spf.  This can result in premature age and sun spots too (we can also provide treatment for these).  Combined with the lines and wrinkles, this can make these areas appear much older than the rest of you.  

The following information about 3 areas you didn’t know dermal fillers could be used.  Are all areas that can all be improved from a simple anti ageing dermal filler treatment & safe removal of sun and age spots.

3 AREAS YOU DIDN’T KNOW DERMAL FILLERS COULD BE USED

3 AREAS YOU DIDN’T KNOW DERMAL FILLERS COULD BE USED

NECK LINES

Neck lines appear over time and are a natural part of the ageing process.  Along with gravity, our necks begin to suffer the unwanted effects of lines and sagging.  However, that’s not to say that we can’t give your neck a little helping hand and turn back the clock.  We are prone to our necks ageing faster due to the dermis being thinner.  

Neck wrinkles are also becoming an issue in our modern age due to repeatedly looking down at our phones otherwise known as…Tech neck.  This new term has been used as a reference to how long we all spend looking down at our devices, and sadly our bodies, one way or another pay the price.  Alongside smoking, this seems to be one of the biggest contributors to the lines arriving on our neck prematurely. 

Treatment for the neck is straight forward and long lasting.  Using dermal fillers lines on the neck can be smoothed away, leaving the neck looking instantly rejuvenated and youthful.  There is also another treatment for the neck lines, which involves botox, this will also help with the look of lines and “turkey neck” which happens due to sagging platysma muscles.  Both of these treatments are provide excellent results in dealing with neck lines.

3 AREAS YOU DIDN’T KNOW DERMAL FILLERS COULD BE USED

DÉCOLLETAGE 

Decolletage or Décolleté this delicate area is all too often overlooked until one day the unloved area looks back at you in the mirror and you realise how neglected it has been.   The wrinkles that appear on your décolletage are due to a mixture of factors.  The mains ones are age, sun exposure, gravity and diet.  All of these will have a contributory factor in the breakdown of the collagen and elastin in the middle layers of your skin. 

The same as the neck, the décolletage area is also prone to age and sun spots.   These sun and age spots can also be simply treated in clinic.  When the skin is also creased and crepey it can make the skin in this delicate area look much older.  With a dermal filler treatment, the whole décolletage area will show a vast improvement.  The results will leave you with a completely rejuvenated appearance of the skin.  Treatment is long lasting and will enhance the appearance of the décolletage area.

Austin Brewer Aesthetics Hand Wrinkles

HAND WRINKLES

Hand wrinkles treatment with dermal fillers for hand wrinkles show instant results.  Along with the neck and décolletage, the hands are another area we simply don’t pay enough attention to.  But the hands can show our age just as much as our faces. 

Our hands are put through a lot on a day to day basis so they deserve some special attention.  The skin is thin on the backs of our hands.  The ageing process & sun exposure results in loss of volume and again those annoying sun and age spots.  

When you have dermal fillers administered for hand wrinkles you will be amazed at the difference this simple procedure can make.  Plumping out the appearance of any raised veins, and generally smoothing out the areas that have lost volume.  The results are always very effective and pleasing.

At Austin Brewer aesthetics we use only the very best clinically proven dermal fillers.  Juvederm is always our filler of choice as it consistently delivers the smoothest, most natural looking and longest lasting results.

Removal of sun and age spots as mentioned above is another treatment that Austin can offer in clinic.  Simple cryotherapy will eliminate these unwanted marks and the skin will once again look fresh and blemish free.  Ask for more information when you book your dermal filler treatment for complete skin rejuvenation.

Other improvements that will help

Apply moisturiser

Drink plenty of water

Always wear spf – every day

Try to limit time spent looking down at mobile phones etc

Stay out of the sun during hottest part of the day

Wear a hat in the sun as this has the bonus of protecting your face and neck.  If the brim is wide enough it will also protect your décolletage.

One last, but very important thing to note…

Unfortunately and strangely dermal fillers are not regulated in the UK.  So essentially anyone can buy them and start injecting.  Scary thought.  So we strongly advise you to only see a medical professional to administer any kind of injectable treatments – especially dermal fillers, as the complications that can arise from poor injection technique and incorrect placement are terrible and can be life changing.  So please do your research, ask questions and stay safe.

What do I need to know about getting Lip Fillers near me?

Lip fillers are everywhere and they’re here to stay. So how do you choose which practitioner to let near your face?. Do you just google “Lip fillers near me”. “cheap lip filler” Or “Lip filler price”. What do I really need to know about lip filler?.  

Just like everything in life, there’s the good, the bad & the ugly. The business of facial aesthetics is no different. We are here to give you a few pointers to ensure you stay safe. Austin Brewer has been creating beautiful and natural lips since 2004. From his aesthetics clinic here between Poole and Bournemouth, we know what we are doing, and as Austin says

“I wasn’t nicknamed the – Lip King, by a highly regarded Harley Street colleague for nothing!”

The best lip fillers…

…are the ones that suit your face. By using a reputable product such as Juvederm® and using a trained medical professional to administer the filler. How do I make my lips look bigger? How do I make my lips look more even? Where can I get lip filler near me? Deals on lip filler? All of these questions are on everyone’s lips (excuse the pun!). More about being wary on cheap lip fillers and questionable deals later.

The important fact to note is that Austin Brewer has been established at his private clinic near Sandbanks in Poole for over 16 years. During that time has been trained by the world leaders in the industry.  Non surgical facial aesthetics (lip fillers, Botox, etc) are all he does all day every day. He has built his business proud of the fact, that his patients wellbeing is always the most important factor. And of course his excellent results speak for themselves.

The first most important factor to mention here first is No Reputable Aesthetic Practitioner will offer “Deals”. Neither will they agree to sharing product. So please respect your face and your wellbeing and find a practitioner not solely based on the price point.

What do I need to know before a lip augmentation treatment?

There are a lot of questions you will have when wanting to get lip fillers for the first time. Maybe you have moved to a new area and are not sure where to start. If you know people that have procedures, then you can see the practitioners work first hand. You can then organise a consultation and ask as many questions as you wish.  

Another note, be wary of practitioners who take “deposits” for consultations, that is then redeemable against any treatment. Suppose you choose not to have the work done with them?. You have essentially just paid for your consultation. Or worse you will feel that you have to go ahead with treatment just so you don’t lose your deposit. Just a cautionary note worth bearing in mind.  

We are very proud here at Austin Brewer. We are one of the few facial aesthetics practitioners in Bournemouth and Poole who offer free consultations always.  

Celebrity lip fillers in the news

With barely a week going by without lip augmentation making the press. Kylie Jenner’s lips have taken on their own persona entirely- first, it was has she?, she denied it, admitted it, had them dissolved then had them redone!. Fillers have also arrived on the high street via Superdrug. Even this well know brand has come under scrutiny and criticism from the NHS. This meant they have had to tighten up on their own practices. Including the very important side of any aesthetic treatment – mental health checks.  

We have to keep in mind a few things. Do you really want the best or are you really asking – what’s the cheapest lip filler?. The main problem with this is, cheap never equals excellent. Yes there are some areas of life where we may be able to save a few pounds. But do really want to exercise economy when it comes to someone injecting you face?. No Medical expert would try and get you to have work done, by trying to entice you with discounts and offers. This goes against good medical practice and their code of ethics.

Another important factor is make sure you see the whole face in those before and after photos. The lips should balance the face out and not make you look completely unbalanced, like a walking pair of lips!. So don’t just look at a close up of the lips – ask to see the persons whole face. If the practitioner can’t show you, then you should walk away.

Cheap deal or your wellbeing?

Do you know the other most important reason for using a medical professional for your treatments?. Supposing something did go wrong?. Such as you having a severe allergic reaction which leaves you struggling for breath. Wouldn’t it be much more reassuring that if any such unfortunate issue did arise, you were already in safe hands with a medical professional. Who would have plenty of experience to assist you with the appropriate medical equipment already there?.

Cheap lip fillers near me

It’s easy to lose track of how significant it is to let someone near your face with a needle. Really look at your face. Do you still want to risk someone who doesn’t really know what they’re doing inject you?. Especially when there can be all sorts of complications. We don’t want to put you off or scare you. With the rise of unqualified beauticians, and fake or counterfeit product being bought online .(if you can buy a fake Louis Vuitton online you can certainly buy fake filler too). Everyone need to be aware of what you are actually receiving in return for you hard earned money.

 Your dermal filler should always be bought from a reputable pharmacy. By your medical practitioner and should always be hyaluronic acid.  Lip fillers are a non surgical procedure. Never have permanent filler, because if something goes wrong you’ll need surgery to remove it.  

Although deciding to have lip filler augmentation is a cosmetic procedure. It should always be a very well considered decision and carried out in a sterile clinic after a thorough consultation.

Your face is worth the best

It’s awful to think that there are people out there, with too good to be true prices. That are actually luring people to lose sight of their own wellbeing?. It certainly is not your best interests that they care about, how can it be?. They are deceiving and enticing people to part with their money, only to left unhappy with substandard results. Results at best are unsymmetrical or overfilled lips anyone?. Or possibly there was nothing really injected at all?. Have you ever noticed your lip filler seems to disappear  really quickly?. So you have to keep returning. Which then costs more money over time. Therefore causes more trauma to your lips when they have to be retouched every few months?. Here at Austin Brewer our lip fillers last for 9-12 months, sometimes even longer.

What can go wrong with cheap lip fillers?

A worst case scenarios would be a vascular occlusion . This is one of the more serious complications (this can happen with any facial filler). It usually results in hospital intervention. Providing diagnosis and treatment is sought quickly. The surgeons will be able to save your face before necrosis. Necrosis is when you skin tissue starts to die. If this did happen you would be left with a permanent hole in your face. Unfortunately the sad fact is these are becoming more common. So when some who has little or no medical background is giving you cheap lip filler, you are at risk. People simply have to be made aware of the real risks associated with getting lip filler.  

The future of dermal fillers…

The reports that the government plan to make fillers prescription – only from 2020. (Source Harpers Bazaar 2020), just as Botox is prescription- only already, this at least is a step in right direction. Please don’t be put off having lip fillers, but use caution in your decision of choosing your practitioner. Creating beautiful plump and symmetrical lips are straight forward procedures. That need to be carried out by a medical professional and in the suitable clinical environment.

How to stay safe when getting lip fillers

Please stay safe and make sure you know all the facts about your practitioner, and the product they will be injecting.

Can jowls be lifted without surgery?

Can I smooth, shape and tighten my jawline without surgery?, the answer is most certainly yes. Can jowls be lifted without surgery? Yes, yes & yes!. you do not need to live with those jowls, double chin, saggy skin, whichever way you describe it, there is an answer.  You may be thinking “Do I need to go under the knife?” “Do I need a full facelift?” Don’t worry the answer is no, keep reading to find out why.

Smooth and tighten your jawline using Juvederm filler - lifting you jowls without surgery
Smooth & tighten your jawline using Juvederm filler

Can jowls be lifted without surgery?

Unfortunately nature can be unkind and so can gravity, but fortunately there is now a treatment, to lift those jowls. A facelift without surgery, using filler.  The filler we use is Juvederm, it is Hyaluronic acid, which is not as scary as it sounds. Our own skin cells actually produce hyaluronic acid naturally in an effort to maintain moisture levels. Due to ageing and environmental factors our faces are literally “faced” with on a daily basis, our own natural levels take a dip.  This can cause, dullness, fine lines and uneven skin tone and texture, which are none of the things that give us youthful looking skin.

But why do I get jowls?

Our jawline is a major part of the scaffolding for our entire face, so as those signs of ageing start to happen, what we are really seeing is loss of elasticity and volume which causes those horrible jowls.  A natural defined jawline will not make you look like a man (unless of course, you are a man who would like a more chiselled and defined look in which case we can do that too, have a look here), in the hands of the right practitioner you will achieve a naturally beautiful jawline that is subtly and delicately contoured not chiselled. So back to our original question – Can jowls be lifted without surgery? Absolutely and definitely!.

Austin Brewer has been creating smooth and defined jawlines using Juvederm - lifting jowls without the need for surgery
“I have always wanted to give my clients the most beautiful & natural results” Austin Brewer

So what can help lift my jowls?

When we are young we have, what the facial aesthetics industry calls a “triangle of youth”. This means there is more volume in the upper face. This then tapers down into a ‘v’ shape at the jaw. These shapes are nothing new they are actually the mathematical ideals of beauty. But as we age this “triangle of youth” actually ends up turned upside down. So the heaviness is now in the lower part of the face, causing a saggy look. 

This is why defining the jawline can have such a skin tightening effect. Combined with some cheek filler and the overall effect is smooth and tightened skin. Which is not over stretched, like a regular surgical facelift would leave you with. Instead the skin looks plump in the right places and contoured where it should be. You could call it “a real life filter” 

Learning how to define the jawline is surprisingly important to many of us. A 2017 study by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 67 per cent of the people surveyed were bothered by excess fat and skin around their chin and neck.  With all the latest trends in our instagram feeds of some very pulled tight high pony tails. (as seen on Kylie Jenner in the latest edition of Vogue – January 2020). This treatment revolution could not have come at a better time.

Our secret weapon against jowls – Juvederm

The saviour of all of our lower face distress is Juvederm’s latest hyaluronic acid filler Volux. It has been created with jawlines at the forefront of its development. Volux is the most advanced and superior product currently on the market, and it’s made for this very job.  Juvederm Volux has a very strong reputation as the product for transforming jawlines.

Since its launch we have seen excellent results here at Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics. One of the most popular questions in my clinic is “Can jowls be lifted without surgery”? And as we tell them, yes they can. Our clients have all been very impressed with the transformation of their jawlines.  Combining the best hyaluronic filler and some very advanced training in “M D Codes” specialised for achieving such natural results. This is something which Austin Brewer is a proud advocate of,

“The days of over filled lips and cheeks are looking like they are turning a corner. I’m very pleased they are becoming a thing of the past. I have always wanted to give my clients the most beautiful and natural results.”

Advanced treatments – excellent results

And so the rise of the popular the liquid facelift has continued to become one of our most popular treatments. This is mostly down to the fact that it looks so very natural.

MD Codes are the groundbreaking treatment using Juvederm fillers to lift your jowls without surgery
MD Codes have revolutionised the way filler is used to sculpt the face

We are very pleased to be one of the first clinics to offer Juvederm Volux. We have been offering this jawline sculpting treatment in Bournemouth since its launch. 

So remember, having a defined jawline does not mean you will end up looking like a man. It will however, give you a defined natural jaw enhancement without having surgery.  If you are wondering how long jawline filler will last?, you’ll be pleased to hear that the instant results will last you approx 18 months and there is no downtime.

3 Ways You Can Contour & Slim Your Face and Jaw Using Fillers

Contour & Slim your face…

Celebrities, make-up artists and social media influencers have been using tricks to contour & slim their clients faces for years.  To enhance and create a more flattering facial appearance.  You can contour & slim your face by using a combination of concealer, bronzer and highlighter.  Most importantly contouring can give the illusion of prominent cheekbones, a slimmer nose and a more defined jawline.  Although this makeup process can achieve good results, it requires a lot of skill, product and time.  However, why not contour and slim your face so you always look naturally radiant.  So you don’t need access to the world’s top makeup artists in the morning!.

A much more effective alternative is using dermal fillers to contour and slim your face to emphasise your facial features.  Facial fillers provide definition and therefore contour your features without the need for heavy makeup or plastic surgery.
Interested in finding out more? Read on to discover three ways you can contour your face with fillers:

Define your jawline

Firstly genetics will play a huge part in whether you have a defined jawline.  If your jawbone is closer to your neck, it can appear less defined.  Age can also play a part in a changing jawline.  But the effects of ageing can be reduced without the need for invasive surgery.  If you’re unhappy with your current jawline, facial remodelling using dermal fillers may therefore be a suitable option for you.

If your jawline is sagging, by using dermal fillers to the surrounding and specific areas, excess skin can lift and add volume, filling out any drooping areas.  Austin Brewer who is a skilled and artistic facial aesthetic practitioner can sculpt and shape the jawline by adding dermal filler into these key areas.

If you have dimples or lines on or around your chin and jawline, these too can be filled with chin and jaw fillers by adding volume to any skin indents.  The results are immediate and can help restore a fresh and youthful appearance.
Fillers can be applied to help even out shape and define the lower half of your face for a more balanced appearance. They can also soften jowls and correct the appearance of your side profile.

Slimmer nose

Non-surgical facial remodelling can also be used to give the appearance of a slimmer nose.  Fillers can also even out any lumps and bumps on your nose too!

If you don’t want to commit to plastic surgery, would like a bump in your nose straightened out, or would like it to appear slender, this can be achieved using dermal fillers.  Dermal fillers are a great option for patients who would just like a small correction without surgery.  Reshaping can be achieved quickly and comfortably and is therefore becoming a popular alternative to rhinoplasty.

Highlight your cheekbones

For patients who are wishing to enhance the appearance of their cheekbones.  This simple dermal filler treatment alone certainly can make a huge difference to your face shape and confidence.  Dermal fillers add volume to sunken areas and as a result create beautifully contoured cheekbones.

Non-surgical facial remodelling can perfect facial proportions and enhance natural beauty.  Austin Brewer only uses 100% hyaluronic acid-based fillers which are highly biocompatible.

Treatments are mostly painless and are injected using an ultra-thin needle.  Sometimes patients will feel a slight discomfort, but this subsequently fades soon after the application.

How a Non-Surgical Nose Job Can Transform Your Look

Non-surgical nose jobs are becoming more and more popular and it’s easy to understand why.  Results are seen instantly, it’s more affordable than rhinoplasty and the recovery time is minimal.  If you’ve always wanted to tweak your nose shape to enhance your overall look, then read on and discover why a non-surgical nose job will be the best option for you.

Why is a non-surgical nose job better?

Many people have concerns about going under the knife as plastic surgery is extremely invasive.  Surgery needs plenty of downtime and requires an anesthetic.  If you prefer not to have permanent surgery, a non-surgical nose job may be more appealing.  Treatment is less risky and has fewer side effects.

The results are immediately noticeable and the recovery time is faster.  Initially, you may notice some swelling but this is temporary.  Any swelling generally settles down after 24 hours.

Almost all of us have seen a rhinoplasty that looks unconvincing, but non-surgical nose jobs give a natural appearance.

How does it work?

Dermal fillers are injected to specific areas to provide balance or to accentuate your nose shape.  The facial fillers used to even out bumps and create a straight line.  If your main concern is that your nose is too wide, filler can also be inserted into the end of your nose to lift the tip and give the appearance of a thinner shape.

How long will the results last?

One of the key benefits of this non-surgical procedure is the effects aren’t permanent.  Your results will last between six and eighteen months.  This time frame varies patient to patient as different volumes of fillers can be used to reach the desired look.

5 Ways To Look Younger

Aging is a natural part of life. We believe in embracing your age and enjoying the wisdom that comes with every new experience. But looking younger than your official date of birth can give you a huge confidence boost! Learn the 5 ways to look younger with a non surgical facelift and other best ways to bolster your self-esteem and look younger.

Non-surgical face lifts

Non-surgical face lifts are the ideal way to make you look younger in an instant. Liquid facelifts are an innovative method of applying dermal fillers to target areas, with no surgery required. Our hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers will plump out any deep-set wrinkles and creases to give your complexion as smooth, youthful texture.

Dress slim

Its perfectly normal and natural to gain a little weight as we grow older. Your metabolism will start to slow, and you can’t get away with tucking into all the same amount biscuits you ate in your twenties. But you can shave a few years off by wearing flattering clothes. Opt for tailored pieces and bright colours to make the most of your figure.

Get your beauty sleep

You know you feel magic after a good night’s sleep. But regular early nights and long lie-ins will help lift those dark circles under your eyes.

Chemical Peels

Many of us find our complexion loses its lustre as the years go by, making it look dull. Chemical skin peels stimulate the production of collagen in your skin, evens hyperpigmentation and exfoliates the skin cells. This process will rejuvenate your facial complexion with a bright glow.

Drink plenty of water

I know, you’ve read this in nearly every beauty blog ever written. But it’s true. Moisturisers can only penetrate the very top surface of the skin. Regular hydration is one of the easiest ways to keep your skin looking moisturised. If you find drinking water isn’t helping your skin, try a skin booster or ‘injectable moisturiser’. Our Juvéderm Volite treatment provides intense dermal hydration for up to nine months, giving you that gorgeous dewy, fresh look every day.

So there you have 5 ways to look younger.  Want to know more about our cosmetic treatments? Book a free skin consultation with Austin Brewer today on 07823 88388 and learn how we can help you achieve the results you want.

Surgery Or Non-Surgical Facelift – Which Is Best For You?

Non surgical facelifts are ideal if you’re looking for a way to revitalise, refresh and enhance. Looking at your facial aesthetics desires you may have thought about having a facelift. With so many cosmetic treatments available, such as facelifts and facial remodeling, we look at what option would be best for you.

Surgical facelifts

A surgical facelift is designed to give you a more youthful appearance by reducing sagging skin. Carried out under general anesthetic, the surgeon will make incisions into the skin, pull it upwards and then stitch it into its new position. It usually takes around two to three hours to perform, and most patients will stay overnight. It can take up to nine months to recover and you may need to take some time off work. As with any type of surgery, there are possible risks. If you take blood-thinning medications or have a condition which prevents blood clotting, you would not be able to have a surgical facelift. It is also not recommended for smokers as you may have reduced wound healing capabilities.

Non-surgical facelifts

A non-surgical facelift allows you to alter the look of specific areas of your face using dermal fillers. Eliminating the need to go under the knife, this quick procedure provides instant results and has a recovery time of just 24-hours.
There is minimal risk compared to surgery, as there is no need for anesthetic. It is a much more cost-effective way of achieving that smooth and even complexion. As results last between six and eighteen months there is no long-term commitment.
Facial fillers also help to reverse the signs of aging by increasing the volume and ‘plumpness’ of the skin’s texture. The added volume gives your complexion a youthful softness. In contrast, surgery will simply stretch the skin out, which can leave you with a hollow and sunken appearance.

Non-surgical nose job

A non-surgical nose job works in the same way as a non-surgical facelift. If you are looking to straighten your nose, fillers can be inserted to even out any bumps. If you want a thinner nose, filler can be applied to the tip to create that illusion.

8 Point Face Lift

MD Codes are used to guide the points where fillers should be inserted to complement the natural contours of your face. It mimics the look of a surgical facelift but eliminates the lengthy recovery process and unsightly scars.

What Are Injectable Moisturisers And Skin Boosters?

As the summer comes to close, most of us swap to a more heavy-duty moisturiser. The winter weather calls for a higher level of hydration and injectable moisturisers are be the ideal solution. Injectable moisturisers (or skin boosters) are the hottest cosmetic trend right now. Read on to find out why.

How Do Injectable Moisturisers Work?

Volite is the latest anti-aging treatment from famous Botox® brand, Juvéderm. The Volite contains hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body to plump and hydrate the skin. Just one treatment provides a whole nine months of dermal hydration. The result? A beautiful glowing, dewy complexion. Skin boosters like Juvéderm Volite plumps and evens the skin and can help reduce fine lines.

How Are Moisture Injections Different To Dermal Fillers?

The hyaluronic acid in moisture injections is more aqueous than in traditional dermal fillers. This fluid texture allows the moisture to spread evenly across the skin. The flowing hyaluronic acid in injectable moisturisers is well suited for hands, neck and décolletage application.

Why Is Juvéderm Volite Moisturiser Treatment Better Than Normal Moisturisers?

There are plenty of anti-aging moisturisers on the market, but these can only be applied on top of the skin. Your complexion will only retain a small amount of moisture from topical creams. However, injectable moisturisers stimulate under the skin barrier to increase the body’s own production of collagen and elastin to rejuvenate your complexion.

What is a liquid facelift?

What is a liquid facelift? Here at Austin Brewer we can offer an all round solution that’s better than a cream but less drastic than going under the knife.  Despite the claims of beauty creams, products and lotion, no external moisturiser will truly eradicate wrinkles. However, not everyone is willing to go under the knife to achieve a youthful look. Luckily, there is a solution. Read on to discover why ‘liquid facelifts’ are the ideal solution for non-surgical, effective results.

How does a liquid facelift work?

A ‘liquid facelift’ uses dermal fillers and Botox®, strategically inserted into specific areas of the face to emulate the results of a surgical facelift. Dermal fillers contain biocompatible hyaluronic acid to moisturise the skin and boost skin tone. Botox is made from Botulinum Toxin Type A, an intensely purified protein, the relax the muscle area. Both are used together to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and sagging to create a natural-looking, youthful result.

How long do the results last?

The results of a liquid face lift can last anywhere between one to two years. The length of the results may depend on which areas of the face are targeted. The effects of a liquid facelift can be seen almost instantly after the cosmetic treatment after any mild swelling has dissipated after 24 hours.

What if I don’t want Botox?

If you are interested in the idea of a liquid facelift but not sure if you are ready for Botox or perhaps you simply don’t need it just yet. Talk to your aesthetic practitioner about an 8-point facelift. This is similar to a liquid facelift but uses only dermal fillers. The facial fillers are inserted into specific areas of the face as outlined by the MD code system.

Where can I get a liquid facelift?

For natural and reliable results, consult a qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioner. Austin Brewer has over 25 years of experience producing wrinkle treatments with outstanding results.

The best dermal fillers in Bournemouth & Poole for cheeks & face

Are you looking for the best dermal fillers in Bournemouth & Poole?

Nothing looks so youthful as a face with full, round cheeks. Although many of us may resent ‘baby face’ in our early years, the difference when volume is lost in the face is considerable. Sadly, as we age the face loses its volume. This can result in a hollow, gaunt look.  But luckily you can rejuvenate the shape of your cheeks with the best dermal fillers in Bournemouth & Poole.

How do cheek dermal fillers work?

Cheeks are a central focus to the face. A flattering cheek shape can help improve the jawline or simply plump areas where cheeks have lost volume over time. Dermal fillers help revitalise your appearance by injecting hyaluronic acid to plump out the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body and has amazing moisturising agents to improve the skin tone.

MD codes for cheeks

If your aesthetic practitioner is inexperienced or unknowledgeable, dermal fillers in the cheeks may look unnaturally ‘pillowy’. This is caused by using too much filler in the wrong areas of the face. If you are considering trying dermal fillers for the first time, ask your practitioner for an MD Code dermal filler face lift. MD codes are an innovative system to ensure provide aesthetic practitioner with clear guidelines to achieve beautiful, natural looking results.

What are the best dermal fillers for cheeks?

We use the best dermal fillers in bournemouth & Poole, namely Juvederm.  All the fillers we use in our skin clinic in Bournemouth are 100% hyaluronic acid based and biocompatible. The brand and type of dermal filler may vary according to each patient’s individual needs. We currently use Restylane and Juvéderm dermal fillers in our clinic.

How long do cheek fillers last?

Dermal fillers will last between six and eighteen months. The length of after-effects will be dependent on the amount used and the requirements of the client.

What is an 8 Point Facelift?

The new 8 Point facelift is a hot topic amongst beauty bloggers right now.  With it’s significant but natural effects, it’s clear to see why.  Even those who swore they would never touch a needle are trying this new non-surgical face lift. We explain how the eight point face lift system is different and why you should try it.

You may be hesitant to try Botox in Bournemouth or dermal fillers after seeing the ‘frozen face’ results from inexperienced practitioners.  MD codes are different.  The innovative 8 point facelift takes any unpredictable guesswork out of the equation.  Dr Maio’s dermal filler system instructs aesthetic practitioners where to inject fillers to create specific changes or movement in the face.  MD codes in the 8 point facelift also provide detailed recommendations of the correct amount of filler to use.  This prevents any risk of puffy ‘pillow face’ effects.

What do MD Codes do?

The main aim of MD codes is to reverse signs of gravity and ageing.  Dermal fillers are applied to tighten areas of the face which is starting to sag or plump areas that need more volume.
Some common areas include:

• Lifting cheekbones
• Reduce lines from the nose to the mouth
• Add symmetry
• Plump hollow areas under the eyes

This system only uses the minimal number of injections to create a youthful and natural look appearance.

Does the 8 point facelift hurt?

You may experience a slight stinging in the areas being treated. However, the fillers are applied with an ultra-thin needle, similar to lip fillers, so the discomfort is minimal.  There is also lidocaine in the fillers.  So any minimal pain or discomfort will soon fade soon after the treatment is complete.

How long does a 8 point facelift last?

This cosmetic treatment procedure only takes between 45 mins to 1 hour to complete.  As each treatment is bespoke to the individual some procedures may not need fillers in all 8 points.

The stunning results of the 8 point face lift system can last up to 18 months.  Length of results may vary depending on the type of dermal filler use and the areas which are treated.

Can Dermal Fillers help acne scars?

Even if the worst of your acne-ridden days are long gone, the evidence can remain on your face. Acne affects nearly all of us at some point but long-term physical scarring affects 20% of acne sufferers. At our skin clinic in Bournemouth, we understand that acne scarring can have deep impact on your self-esteem. Many of our patients talk about the impact of scarring has on their daily routine. But here we discuss how acne scarring can be treated with dermal fillers to help you feel confident in your own skin.

How dermal fillers treat acne scars

Dermal fillers in Bournemouth are ideal for treating specific types of acne scars. The treatment is most effective for ‘rolling’ scars (a wave-like indentation in the skin) and ‘boxcar’ scars (similar to chicken pox scars). The hyaluronic acid from the facial fillers are injected into the skin to plump the indentation. This adds volume in the skin to create a smooth surface texture.

What to expect

We recommend having an in-depth skin consultation with your facial aesthetic practitioner before starting treatment. They will discuss with you your requirements and the best type of dermal filler for your treatment. During your cosmetic treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and the dermal fillers will be injected into the desired areas. You may feel a little stinging sensation, but this discomfort is only temporary. The procedure is simple, and the results can be seen immediately.

Other cosmetic treatments for acne

If you are suffering from acne on a regular basis, try a chemical peel in Bournemouth. Chemical peels are very effective at decreasing acne breakouts and can help fade the signs of discolouration.

What are MD Codes?

MD Codes were created in Brazil by international aesthetic expert, Dr Maurico de Maio. He created a precise system to help aesthetic practitioners inject the correct type of dermal fillers in specific areas of the face to achieve an optimal and natural-looking rejuvenation.

This customised dermal filler treatment is designed especially for you. The Code system enables aesthetic practitioners to create bespoke treatments which complement your exact facial structure and proportions.

Treatment can also be optimised to your budget, by treatment happening in stages. If you are looking for a cost-effective treatment focussing on just the eye area, Austin Brewer can plan an MD Code treatment suited to your requirements.

Can dermal fillers move?

Dermal fillers are one of our most popular cosmetic treatments. They give your complexion a bright, youthful tone and can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. But one question we are often asked is “Can dermal fillers move?”. Here we discuss why you can rest assured your facial fillers will stay put!

Common fillers myths

The idea that dermal fillers would move seems logical. In fact, many patients feel nervous when washing or touching their face, in fear that their facial fillers may move. But don’t worry!

The filler and lip fillers we use in our aesthetic practitioner clinic are made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the human body.  Interestingly, these fillers contain a clever molecule that coils when it is inserted into the skin.  This tissue integration causes the molecules to weave itself with the natural collagen and elastin in the skin, keeping the filler firmly in place. Dermal fillers once settled after treatment will remain in the area they have been injected and usually last between six and eighteen months.

Are dermal fillers removable?

If your facial fillers are firmly fixed into your skin, what happens if you don’t like the results? One of the good aspects of this cosmetic treatment is that it can be removed.  Although to remove dermal fillers is not a procedure that is without it’s own risks and complications as hyaluronidase can have serious side effects.  It should not be used as a option lightly.  Hyaluronic acid is an incredible molecule, that does not bind itself to any other molecules, so it can be dissolved. Unlike surgical treatments, dermal fillers are low risk, with no permanent changes.

We have never had to remove facial fillers at our clinic. Our clients have always been happy with their results!

Botox vs Dermal Fillers: which is best for you?

If you have heard the term Botox vs dermal fillers, you will know that both treatments reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But what is the difference between the two? Read on the discover how these treatments vary and which is best for you.

Botox vs Dermal fillers – what’s the difference?

Botox is the brand name for a specific type of wrinkle treatment using an intensely purified protein. This protein is injected into the muscle to relax the area and diminish the surrounding muscle activity. Botox is a great tool for targeting specific lines, such as frown lines or crows feet.

Dermal fillers work by replenishing the natural level of hyaluronic acid in the face, which decreases as we get older. Hyaluronic acid supports the skin and can be injected into the face to ‘plump’ out lines and wrinkles. This is a great method to add volume to certain parts of the face, which may have sunk due to natural aging or a high impact lifestyle. Hyaluronic acid is also the key ingredient in lip fillers in Bournemouth.

What does each treatment involve?

Both treatments are injected into the target areas with a small needle. This may result in minimal swelling or bruising (but can easily be covered with make-up, if you wish). The side effects for both treatments will soon go, usually within 24 hours. Although you may feel a little discomfort, neither Botox or dermal fillers are painful procedures.

How long do they last?

The results from Botox treatment usually lasts up to three months, but this may vary from patient to patient. The effects of dermal fillers can last up to 18 months, depending on the volume of the dermal fillers used.
